Final Windfall Reading
April 20, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
We are both excited and saddened to be hosting an in-person reading on Wednesday, April 20th, at 6:30 pm, to celebrate Windfall: A Journal of Poetry of Place, on the occasion of its final issue.
Joining co-editors Bill Siverly and Michael McDowell to read on this evening will be Barbara Drake, Eric le Fatte, Charles Goodrich, Marilyn Johnston, Mike Langtry, Elizabeth McLagan, Paulann Petersen, Carlos Reyes, Penelope Scambly Schott, and Dianne Stepp.
The first issue of Windfall was published in Fall of 2002. Windfall: A Journal of Poetry of Place features poetry which captures the spirit of place as part of the essence of the poem. The journal particularly emphasized poetry which is written in the Pacific Northwest and which is attentive to the relationships between people and the landscapes in which we live. We will so miss this lovely journal and our regular hosting of readings from each issue.
We are hoping that the incidence of covid remains as low a month from now as it is today. If that should change, we will re-evaluate, but at this time we are planning on an in-store reading. We hope you will join us!
